Forward Aaron Gordon has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Denver Nuggets worth $92 million — $88 million in base salary and $4 million in incentives — over the four years. The deal also includes a player option for the fourth year in 2025-26.
Gordon was traded to the Nuggets in March, and in return Denver sent shooting guard Gary Harris, rookie guard R.J. Hampton and a protected 2025 first-round draft pick to the Orlando Magic. The 25-year-old Gordon averaged 12.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists with the Magic and Nuggets last season. In the playoffs, he had averages of 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds as the Nuggets reached the second round before being swept by the Phoenix Suns. In 453 career games (366 starts), Gordon has averaged 12.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists.
